In his Sinar Harian column today, Ridhuan Tee wrote,
“Ketahuilah bahawa kita sudah dapat selayaknya apa yang sepatutnya dapat. Malah sudah dapat lebih pun. Jangan terlalu kemaruk kuasa atau tamak. Seperti kata Almarhum Tunku Abdul Rahman, biarkan orang Melayu menjaga kuasa, orang Cina menjaga bisnes.”
In its article headlined, ‘Don’t be too greedy or power hungry, Tee tells Chinese‘, FMT quoted Ridhuan as drawing from Tunku Abdul Rahman’s wisdom that “Malays should control political power and the Chinese, business”.
Translating excerpts of Ridhuan’s article into English, FMT reported:
“He urged them [Chinese] to be satisfied with the economic opportunities already presented to them, which had given them wealth without any of their rights being taken away, unlike the situation in communist countries.”
With regard diaspora Chinese and their fabulous wealth, a news story about a Malaysian student in Sydney – pix below – who spent A$4.65 million buying luxury items and other designer stuff must have served as inspiration for what Ridhuan penned in his column today.
“My parents give me lots of money” — Christine Lee
Christine Lee Jia Xin, a 21-year-old with indulgent rich parents, has a taste for high-end brands such as Christian Dior, Hermes, Chanel, Bvlgari, Prada, Versace, Bottega Veneta, Zegna, Louboutin, Tiffany and Van Cleef & Arpel.
Her shopping list – see bottom of page – is testament not only to her expensive but eclectic taste.
Because her Malaysian Chinese parents gave her lots of money (or so she said), Christine splurged:
- A$332,310 in three visits to the Christian Dior boutique in Sydney
- A$54,640 at Chanel
- 13 Hermes scarves and designer dresses, skirts
more than 100 branded wallets, clutches and handbags
- a Hermes Himalayan Crocodile Birkin that retails for about A$150,000
- bracelets, bangles, pendents and other jewellery
A$2,500 pair of Christian Louboutin boots
A$1,350 Chanel cashmere pillow

M’sian Chinese parents give their kids lots of money
Ridhuan Tee talked about the business and economic opportunities available to Chinese in Malaysia which allowed them to amass lots of wealth. Well, ain’t he right!
It is glorious for a Malaysian girl to have wealthy Chinese parents.
All in all, Christine Lee blew almost A$4.65 million in her Sydney shopping spree.
Australia’s Westpac Bank claimed that it had mistakenly given the young Ms Lee a huge overdraft but according to her, “My parents give me lots of money”.
She added that she had thought it was her parents who banked the A$5 million into her account.
